Using examples, the course will provide detailed coverage of the significant changes to the taxation of investment holding corporations and their impact, including a review of the passive income rules (which can impact the availability of the small business deduction of any associated corporations), the change in the RDTOH rules resulting in two pots of refundable tax, and the general increase in the tax rate for corporate investment income.  Planning considerations will also be addressed, including the advantages that may still be provided by using an investment holding corporation, and the implications for winding up or maintaining an existing investment holding corporation.

Practitioners with private company clients who have accumulated, or expect to accumulate over time, significant corporate owned non operating (ie passive type) assets and internal accountants for private companies, including those work for, or within, a family office.
